Conditions of being in the Alliance and interaction of members of the Alliance
Joining the Alliance
Conditions of interaction with non-Alliance civilizations
First Contact Directive
In the case of a discovery of a new civilization, it should be examined before contact, in disguise if possible, for compliance with directives.
The First Directive states that it is prohibited to establish contact with civilizations that have not reached the technical and cultural level that allows for interstellar flights. Such an event for an unprepared civilization can mean serious and unnatural changes in their morality and culture, which can lead to their self-destruction and extinction.
- 'Exceptions' from the First Directive, allowing to bypass it and make contact even with an unprepared civilization:
Civilization is endangered due to an event that remains unnoticed by this civilization, or civilization is unable to solve the threat of its existence without outside interference. This applies both to the existence of the species itself and directly to the development of civilization. (See the history of contact with Laymarans - they were not biologically threatened with extinction, but the situation with the planet did not leave them with any further prospects in development).
- In the event that one or several individuals made unplanned contact with the local population and there is no possibility of their extraction without risking their life and the preservation of the existence of another civilization secretly from the natives (See contact history with humans ).
The Second Directive states that if the First Directive allows contact with the civilization to be established, a period of acclimatization of the contactees should follow after the contact, and a more detailed study of their society should be conducted. During this period, contactees can visit the territory of the Alliance and produce cultural, material and scientific exchange with members of the Alliance. In many ways, the rights of the civilization and the conditions of interactions with it repeat the conditions of interaction with the civilizations of the Independent Worlds. In the case of a situation where a civilization was contacted in circumvention of the First Directive, a longer and milder acclimatization is carried out, during which various assistance is offered to reasonably accelerate the development of civilization to interstellar standards. In this case, there are more stringent filters of technology and scientific data that can be provided to such a civilization. Also, at least in the first third of the acclimatization period, it is prohibited to transmit the civilization information and materials necessary for the construction of FTL ships, all necessary interactions take place either in the orbit of the home world, or representatives of the civilization are transported to the venue of the meeting by the Alliance ship. The FTL embargo technology is removed after civilization reaches the necessary level of cultural development, allowing adequate independent interaction with alien civilizations. After a period of acclimatization, if the civilization meets the minimum cultural standards (regarding interaction with alien civilizations and partly the general cultural and moral vector of the civilization in question, see above), they are given a proposal (or are allowed if the civilization requested membership before the end of the acclimatization period) to join the Alliance. In the case of cultural inconsistency, or refusal to join, the new civilization is rightfully transferred to the Independent Worlds category.
